Upcoming Activities or Events

Here find details of the upcoming shooting activities and related events at NOSA, the family-friendly Thunder Bay rifle and pistol shooting club.

There will be more club shoots or activities announced here during the year as arrangements are finalized, so check this page periodically for updates.

NOSA Indoor Shooting at Arnone Range -- 20 Sep 2017 through 27 Apr 2018

The fall to spring indoor shooting schedule began at Arnone Range:
--- on Wednesday, 20 Sep 2017 for Junior Shooters;
--- on Friday, 22 Sep 2017 for Adult Shooters.

Be sure to attend regularly and practice up for the traditional NOSA indoor shoots. And it is always good fun talking and joking with your fellow members on these evenings.

The club normally shoots indoors on these evenings until the end of April:
Wednesdays for Juniors from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Fridays for Adults from 6:00 p.m. to 8:50 p.m.

Note: the earlier start time for Adult shooters is intended to allow more persons a reasonable period for shooting. Those that arrive and start early should do their shooting in a timely manner and return upstairs for refreshments and socializing; they must respect the needs of fellow members arriving later and not try to shoot for extended periods or the entire evening.

"There will be scored, bingo, and mystery targets as well as a couple of fun new challenges for the Juniors. The event will start at 7 p.m. Each participant will receive 1 target for each match. Their combined score will be tallied and posted at the end of the evening.

Easter chocolates will be awarded to all Junior participants.

I am also hoping to have one more guest speaker booked in April. I will provide more details as I have them. -- Victoria"
